MAX and Jack Branning will finally track down missing Rainie Cross in EastEnders next week, desperate to bring Max’s granddaughter, baby Abi Branning, home to Walford.
As the week kicks off, Max – played by Jake Wood in the BBC One soap – is frantic with worry as he fears he’s lost little Abi for good.

He starts to crumble under the pressure, but Jack has a breakthrough when he recognises the hotel logo in one of the photos Rainie has sent them.
At the hotel, Rainie – Tanya Franks – meets a guest called Michael who asks her for a drink after spotting her bag of stolen cash. But as she lets him down and prepares to check-out she spots Jack and Max in the hotel and rushes back upstairs.
Max and Jack are confused when they head to Rainie’s room and Micheal answers the door, denying any knowledge of Rainie ever having been there.
Back on the Square, Max is close to breaking point and Kathy Beale – Gillian Taylforth – doesn’t help matters when she shares some heated words with Max about not calling the police.

Struggling to hold it together any longer, Max turns up drunk to work and has a run-in with Stuart Highway who is about to tell him he’s heard from Rainie and she’s in trouble.
Instead Stuart hides the truth from Max and heads off to find Rainie by himself.
